Actor Chadwick Boseman who played the Marvel superhero Black Panther in the MCU has sadly passed away at only 43 following a long fight with colon cancer.

Marvel Studio’s President Kevin Feige, said about the untimely death, “Chadwick’s passing is absolutely devastating. He was our T’Challa, our Black Panther, and our dear friend. Each time he stepped on set, he radiated charisma and joy, and each time he appeared on screen, he created something truly indelible. He embodied a lot of amazing people in his work, and nobody was better at bringing great men to life. He was as smart and kind and powerful and strong as any person he portrayed. Now he takes his place alongside them as an icon for the ages. The Marvel Studios family deeply mourns his loss, and we are grieving tonight with his family.”

Mark Ruffalo who plays The Hulk, noted, “It was the highest honor getting to work with you and getting to know you. What a generous and sincere human being. You believed in the sacred nature of the work and gave your all.”

Chadwick’s last movie was Spike Lee’s Vietnam war film, Da 5 Bloods. He portrayed also Jackie Robinson in 42, James Brown in Get on Up, and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall.

In 2016 Chadwick first played T’Challa / Black Panther in the Captain America: Civil War flick. He was of course the main star of Black Panther in 2018, which focused on his nation of Wakanda in Africa. He then finished with Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Very sad. A reminder (if any were needed in the current times) that death can take us at any age just like that, be you King or Knave. In this case, the mighty, noble King of Wakanda. Goodbye, Chadwick, you’ll be sorely missed.
